A few weeks ago, we asked you to nominate families that you believed were in need of new mattresses. We received tons of nominations and all of them were amazing. It is truly difficult to read through the nominations and choose a family when all are so deserving. One family, however, did receive over 20 nominations.
The winner was Sara and her family. Here is what one person had to say about her story:
"Sara lost her husband last year to cancer. Chuck was a heart transplant recipient, and he and Sara devoted their lives to ministering and helping others. Sara is a teacher where she works with multi-handicapped kids. She is the mother of 3 sons, and they are financially strapped as Sara, now a single mom, works for a nonprofit organization, still paying medical bills, and 2 of the sons are in college."
What Sara and her family have been through is heart breaking however, their story of strength is beautiful. They are truly an amazing family and we are very grateful to have partnered up with Mattress Firm in Tulsa to bless her family with brand new mattresses. Please watch the video below as we hear her story and deliver her the news that she won the contest.
After the delivery, Sara sent me the following e-mail (let me add, I think this is one of the best e-mails I have ever received):
"Thank you so very much for your part of the mattress give away last Friday morning. We've had sooooo much fun sharing the story and it all just helped make Fathers Day less sad. We felt loved on by our Heavenly Father. Your fingertips are a part of each special memory. May God richly bless you and your family and all to which you put your hands."
HUGE thanks to Mattress Firm Tulsa, they are truly an amazing company that has a heart to help families and impact lives. What a beautiful thing!
